      well isnt that a turn up for the books, the 3x 17 lines i bougt got 1 win of $24.15 and the 75 free lines got not 1 win.

      but the regular numbers i picked got 3 winners, of 3x $15.55 

      the quick picks sure sucked and didnt get the powerball once on the 75 lines it picked!

        Ah sorry sg.  Better luck next time.  I've never won anything on a free ticket either.  I won a voucher for 10 free powerballs just a couple months ago.  Had to be quickpicks.  Nothing nada zip zilch.

          Does it feel worst losing with a free ticket than it does with one you paid for?

            For me it does because I tend to practice some magical thinking.  Like these are special because something in the universe made sure I won that voucher, so the universe must be telling me it's time to buy the tickets.   Or maybe -  Wouldn't this be a great story to tell on LP.  I won 25 mil on a free ticket.  I know that story is meant to be told, so I have to win so I can tell that story.

            Yeah, I'm a whack job.

            I don't really believe the magical thinking, not really.  But it's there in the back of my mind.  Because of the magical expectations, when the ticket loses, there is a little more intense feeling of let down than usual.

              Winning a lottery jackpot with any ticket free or bought would make me feel magical and special.  I even felt that way for a while when I matched 5of6 for $1500 in the Ohio Super Lotto in 2002.  I've been spending money trying to recapture that feeling ever since.

                yeah well i did pay $60 to get those free tickets. so really they where half  price tickets. still it was nice dreaming, and someone won thew $20 mill and $30 mill so both jackpots have gone. the $24 won was spent on 2 weeks worth for me and tyhe pal that won it. so i guess its still in play until those  2 weeks worth have run out.

                all in all a good promotion and  i usually grab some when theres extras to be had. i will buy again if such an offer is given again. oh and a group i play in also grabbed a bunch and i dont know how that went , so maybe a winner there also.  if i had won 10's of k  id be whistling a different tune.

                  What does the jackpot there drop back to once it's been won savagegoose?  Still a goodly amount?
